it is in their interests. if north korea's nuclear weapons program goes on other countries in the region, japan, south korea, taiwan and others are themselves going to look whether they want nuclear weapons which would obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he just bought himself a whole lot of time in that job, didn't he? >> well i think he showed that the capability of the north koreans has been underestimated and i think you're right. this will be a political boost for him but let's be clear. this rocket-testing program and the work with iran have been going on for decades and they have had some notable failures but each failure tells them something and each success tells them something. if they can put a payload into orbit which we concede they have apparently done, in effect they're well on the way to putting a nuclear payload anywhere on the planet. jon: two members of the original axis of evil still working together. ambassador john bolton, thank you. >> thank you. jenna: we're going to
states, japan, and i don't know exactly what that is. but it is a combination of toughening the policy with some kind of rewards if there is movement, a positive movement. we have never really tested this guy. we know very little about him. so, i'm not saying the answer is to isolate him completely. that doesn't seem to be working. some kind of engagement, i don't know exactly what. i'm not in the government. i'm a private citizen but i think our approach to north korea ranging from engagement, to sanctions, has not worked. so what we need to do is find a way to deal with him that tests this new guy. we should not just say forget about him and isolate him because he has had nuclear weapons and we have had 60,000 troops there and he has missiles. his people are starving. at the least we need to find ways in a humanitarian way, help those people. >>shepard: a lost challenges there. thank you. we are just a few days away from a vote on egypt's controversial new constitution. today, the main alliance that opposes president morsi urged people to vote "no." opponents are wary of the regime a

-party countries, the united states, south korea, japan, russia, china. china is a big player here, because they have the most influence. they have to figure out how to deal with this new leader. i mean, they've got nuclear weapons. they've got missile technology, but they're also very poor. they're also possibly their sending a trial balloon saying, we want to bargain. i don't know, because very few people have met this new leader and which direction he wants to go is still uncertain. >> so in a lot of all that, i mean, what do you recommend if you were actually advising president obama at this time to do? people don't know who he is. he, obviously, is trying to do the muscle flex here. the six-party talks have been a failure. they basically ended back in 2009. what would you recommend? >> well, i'm not privy to their deliberations. what i would recommend is, first, you do have to fulfill obligations under the security council. there was a violation of missile launching. but i think a more creative way to deal with him needs to happen, and it has to solve south korea, japan, china and us p
come in from japan. what has been the reaction to that rocket launch from the north koreans? >> the amazing thing here in south korea is that even with the rocket launch, folks here are working, they're building, they're thriving. they're focused. and they're building their economy. there's actually been relatively little conversation and don't seem all that worried. i think they believe the foreigners that are here are a lot more worried than they are. they're going about their business, and their business is building the country, building the economy. it's been very impressive to see what i've seen. >> governor, roland martin here. i'm curious. you're trying to bring business from south korea to your state. what kind of business, though? how are you pairing those two up in terms of what your state is good at? south korea might say, hey, it might be a good idea for us to go? >> when i was in the business world, i spent a lot of time visiting customers. now that i'm governor, i still spend time visiting customers. some of those customers are right in delaware, but some of th
from japan. the japanese changed their vaccine schedule in 1993, replacing the mmr triple shot with three separate vaccinations. but following the change, autism rates did not fall. in fact, they appeared to rise, thus making the triple shot an unlikely cause of autism. the danish team now went on to investigate the second theory: the mercury preservative thimerosal. it turned out that in denmark there was a simple way to test this as well. >> in denmark, since the '70s, only one vaccine has contained thimerosal, and that was a pertussis vaccine. it contained thimerosal until may-june '92. then the same vaccine continued but without thimerosal. >> narrator: hviid and colleagues found that children who were given pertussis vaccines with thimerosal before 1992 had identical autism rates as children who received mercury-free vaccines after that date. >> we did not find any association between being vaccinated with the... the thimerosal-containing vaccine and the risk of autism. >> narrator: other studies in the us, the uk and canada also found no association between autism and thi
to affect any neighbors countries. of course you have the likes of japan setting up patriot missiles to shoot down any remnant ors debris if it would hit their country. they wanted to make sure the international community knew that was the case. that's not just what the international community is focusing on. another interesting point to make -- i spoke with a seen your government official just a couple days ago, he said that this is obviously a slap in the face for china as well if they go ahead with this launch because china just, a day before they've announced this possible rocket launch, had been to see them. there had been a politburo member going to pyongyang trying to convince them not to carry out this rocket launch, and yet they've gone ahead with it anyway. certainly we can see relations souring a little there. >> paula, when they've had launcheses that have failed in the past, do they admit the failure? >> well, you know, that's interesting, anderson, they actually did admit back in april the launch was a failure. that was the first time ever that we'd heard those words fr

is struggling, at the time when japan is struggling and slowing down, when china growth is slowing, the world is looking to the united states to take the lead. as it has so many times in so many crises before. yet all they see is the stand-off and the inability to do what i think we all need to do. now, the choice is very clear. we have come to the point where i think most people looking at this understand that if we don't act now, the so-called kicking the can down the road no longer is a viable opportunity. no longer is something that we can afford to do. there's a group called kick it back, and i can see why the american people are frustrated over our inability to come to some agreement on this. and so obviously we hope that the president and speaker boehner will bring us that grand bargain by which we can evaluate and address before the end of the year. now, i have frequently said from this podium and back to the people that i represent in indiana that if we don't start with addressing the spending problem, it doesn't matter how much we raise in taxes or revenue, it doesn't matter how muc

at this from another perspective they didn't fire it anywhere close to japan because the japanese have set up anti-ballistic missiles and they have told the north koreans, we will shoot them down. remember what the fundamentals are of this north korean missile program. first of all, they'll sell it to anybody that has the cash. but second of all, it is blackmail. give us money for food, give us money for technology, give us money, give us energy, give us oil, otherwise we may kill a whole lot of people. we're going to be out there with that threat and they will be appeased. strategy isn't working with the south koreans. isn't working with the japanese. other asians are now lining up. they're looking at all of this and saying, we can't allow this. this country to hold us, you know, at risk, constantly, to get what it wants. >> jim clancy, thank you, on north korea and this rocket launch here. >>> back to oregon. we feel your shock and we feel your grief today and now the shock of learning the gunman, who opened fire at this crowded mall, 10,000 people inside, was 22 years old. here he was, thi

. denmark tops the list. canada at 9. u.s. at 8. france at 7 and japan a measly 4. look at the top tax rates in these countries. americans pay 41.7% when you factor in federal, state and local taxes. dans are happy but pay more, 48%. why? in part because their taxes get them free health care and post secondary education. so, perhaps a more constructive conversation should center on how much we expect to benefit from government services, and how much we're willing to pay for those services. now, the negotiation between speaker boehner and president obama have given us a new term over which to obsess, chain cpi. it would change the way the federal government calculates inflation and those benefits that are tied to it. normally every year both wages and prices go up. the consumer price index or cpi measures how much prices go up by tracking a basket of goods that americans typically buy. this is used to calculate cost of living adjustments on social security. checks pay a little more each year as prices for what we need go up. one potential flaw in the system is that cpi assumes people don't ch
